Sun Tan Effect on Tattoos

You have seen that the sun will ruin your tattoo. Have you ever noticed how old signs left in the sun are faded as if they have been bleached? Ultraviolet rays fade pigment whether it’s on a piece of wood or in your skin. Have you ever noticed that art museums with paintings have no open windows where the sun can directly shine in? The sun would destroy millions of dollars’ worth of artwork. You won’t want your artwork destroyed, either, so use a good, strong sunblock when going out in the sun.
